Well, it's finally starting to feel like Fall around here---and I really cannot believe it's almost time for Turkeys and Pilgrims and sweet potato casserole!
I just replaced my spider on the door with a turkey wreath...and in celebration of our changing decorations, we're going to make some cupcakes to match!
I have a few different designs to share...I love them all! Mix and match or choose one to make all your own.
First on the list--- Acorn cupcakes!
Keep that softened caramel close by....you'll need them for these cute turkeys!!
Now....moving along to some cute sugar cookie leaf toppers! The glaze that I used is simply powdered sugar with water mixed in until you've reached the desired consistency. I like a glaze that is just thin enough to easily paint on with a paint brush. I also like to mix in a little light corn syrup for extra shine. There's not a whole lot of explaining to do here. Just swirl your colors together a bit as you paint. The glaze dries firm. Adorable as cake and cupcake toppers, or just by themselves!
And finally....let's take a look at what we've made!! Ahhhh, I love Fall. I hope you enjoyed these!
Members: I made a quick little video of my turkey cupcake above, for any of you who aren't quite as familiar with using the petal tip. I will add it tonight!
